From the Zion Mission Board: What a great summer of mission endeavors this has been (and is still ongoing) here at Zion!  THIS Sunday, the Mission Board is eager to celebrate the outcomes of three recent trips and thank the congregation for their faithful and prayerful support over their journeys with Jesus. Costa Rica, San Diego and Belize mission trips will be recognized in both morning worship services. Also, there will be a special Sunday School panel discussion in the Fellowship Hall during the Bible Class hour, 9:30-10:30 a.m. Congregation members are encouraged to come hear about the impact these mission teams are having on the ground, how we as a congregation can support future missions, and also be encouraged to join a future trip. We pray that this group wide panel discussion/Q&A will be a fun, educational and inspirational hour. Blessings, Zion Lutheran Mission Board

 

Stewardship Spotlight: Dalton Noack, JILM Ambassador, will be at Zion THIS Sunday to express THANKS to our church for its faithful support.

Rally Day, Sunday Aug 27: Breakfast and Bible study in the Gym to celebrate all the wonderful Parish Education volunteers throughout the past year. Make plans to join us and thank them for their service. ALL Sunday School and Adult Bible Study classes will meet in the Gym. 3rd graders will be presented with a Bible from the Board of Parish Education.

 

Installation of our new DCE Guy Seter is Sunday, August 27 at 3:00 p.m. After the Installation there will be a pounding and a potluck. A "pounding" is an old fashioned "fill the pantry" tradition intended for someone who moves into the community. Many years ago farmers would bring a pound or pounds of their produce to the newcomers. Let's fill the Seter's pantry with non-perishable items such as canned goods, pounds of flour, etc. Prepare your favorite food dish and give the Seters a great Walburg welcome.

 

Capital Campaign envelopes are included in your offering envelope box. Should you need additional envelopes, there are some in the Narthex or Church Office.

 

The Board of Parish Ed would like to recognize all those who have served in Parish Education ministry since September 2016. Send your name to Kayla Winkler (kayla.winkler@zionwalburg.org) by August 20 to ensure you are included in the recognition on Rally Sunday, August 27.

 

Women’s Fall Bible Study starts Tuesday, September 5 at 9:30 a.m. at the home of Carlene Schultz and will continue every Tuesday morning for 6 weeks. We live in a world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end and every day demands and uncertainties of life get us down. This video Bible study series, “Finding Hope in an Unstable World” by Melissa Spoelstra, examines God’s Word of instruction to His people. Through the prophet Jeremiah, we will discover ways to live a life free from worry and doubt as we surrender our will to God and put our hope in Him alone. Workbooks are $14 and may be purchased at the first session. Contact Lori Marrow (512)818-5514 or Carlene Schultz (713) 542-6216.

Monday Night Monthly Bible Study - starts September 25 and continues on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the home of Dianne Buchhorn. Donna Coppersmith is the leader. She wrote an inspirational book entitled "Seven Skirts for Seven Sisters" after spending a month traveling in Africa doing missionary work. She gave away skirts to women as the Lord led her. Each skirt became a "God Story" teaching her powerful and practical lessons on praying, listening and then responding to God's leading. She's chosen seven of those amazing stories to write about. At the end of each chapter are Scripture and study questions to enhance the lessons on prayer. You will learn how God can use a simple thing like a skirt, as He's also shown us in His Word how He spoke through lilies of the field, loaves of bread and even a donkey. Notify Peggy Turnipseed (512-930-0303/tseedmp@tseedtx.com) or Rosanne Capdeville at the Church Office (512-863-3065) by August 28 to order a book ($13.00) or for additional information.
